Murariu Can't Be Stopped

BrettC
Dan Murariu On Fire

Whether he has the best of it or not, Dan "dan82mur" Murariu has proven to be an indestructible force here on Day 2. Murariu just eliminated "micha3096" in 28th place to cut the field down to three tables and take a commanding lead in the tournament.

"WhySoSrsSon" raised to 44,000 from early position and Nick "OU THE NICK" Hahn three-bet to 102,254. Murariu then four-bet to 221,555, which was followed by a five bet from "micha3096" for a total of 530,581. Everyone got out of the way except Murariu, who felt priced in to call with his {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}.

As expected, "micha3096" flipped over aces. The {K-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop left Murariu drawing thin, but he picked up flush outs when the {6-Hearts} came on the turn. Sure enough, Murariu got there with the {4-Hearts} on the river and micha3096 was dealt a nasty exit in 28th place. Murariu increased his lead to nearly double the stack of "shuriken555" in second place.
